Tea

Tazo Tea

Tea was introduced to Europe as a medicinal cure in the 1600s. In 1840, afternoon tea was introduced by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford to quell her hunger pangs between lunch and dinner. The fancy British tea is traditionally served at 4 in the afternoon. Most tea in America comes from the orange pekoe variety. The golden leaves contain tannin which are responsible for the flavor and color. One teaspoon of tea leaves is perfect for each six ounces water. If you use herbal tea steep 8 minutes. For green tea steep 3 minutes and for black tea, steep 5 minutes.

Stash Jasmine Blossom Tea

 

Intoxicating Jasmine, May 1, 2007

Stash's Jasmine Blossom Green Tea is a heady infusion with romantic undertones and a subtle elation. This premier tea is perfectly blended for a full-bodied taste and delicate floral bouquet. The finest green teas mingle beautifully with jasmine blossoms to make this a very satisfying tea with honey.
